THE VOCATIONS of the LAITY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
THE VOCATIONS of the LAITY [The laity] live in the world, in each and every one of the world's occupations and callings and in the ordinary circumstances of social and family life which, as it were, form the context of their existence. There they are CALLED BY GOD to contribute to the sanctification of the world from within, like leaven, in the spirit of the Gospel, by fulfilling their own particular duties. Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, n. 31 Vatican Council II "We are convinced that if this reconnection be made, if the Church, secure on her foundations, boldly throws herself open to lay activity, she will experience such a springtime as we cannot imagine. The general body of faithful people has been a great reservoir of decisive energies in every age." YVES CONGAR, 0.P., LAY PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH, 1957, P.

The Vocations of the Laity [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
The Vocations of the Laity BY EDWARD P. HAHNENBERG When I was a graduate student at the University of Notre Dame, I had a small office on the 12th floor of the Theodore M. Hesburgh Memorial Library—better known as "Touchdown Jesus" for its huge mural of Christ looking out over the football stadium. The office was small, just big enough for a desk. But it had a spectacular view of campus. It was the same view—l bragged to my friends —that Fr. Hesburgh had, whose much larger office was directly above my own. Fr. Flesburgh had stepped down as university president several years earlier. During his 3 5-year tenure he had become a national leader in civil rights, public policy, and education. Fie had advised presidents and popes, served on countless commissions and boards, and even made it into The Guinness Book of World Records for "Most Honorary Degrees." Thus retirement was something of a relative term for Fr. Hesburgh. Well into his eighties, he still went into the office every day. A...
The Decree on the Lay Apostolate [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
The Decree on the Lay Apostolate BY THE SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL Vatican IPs Decree on the Lay Apostolate draws on the council's Constitution on the Church (Lumen Gentium), which describes the laity as full members of the people of God, baptized disciples who share in Christ's mission both in the Church and in the world. Participation of Laity in the Church's Mission The Church was founded so that by spreading Christ's kingdom throughout the world to the glory of God the Father, every man and woman may share in the saving work of redemption, and so that through them the entire world may be truly directed toward Christ. Every activity of the mystical body, with this in view, goes by the name of apostolate, which the Church exercises through all its members, though in various ways. In fact, the Christian vocation is, of its nature, a vocation to the apostolate as well. In the organism of a living body no member is purely passive: sharing in the life of the body each member also shares i...
The Rise of the Theology of the Laity [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
The Rise of the Theology of the Laity BY EDWARD P. HAHNENBERG Vatican IPs prophetic call for a more active laity in the Church and in the world did not fall out of thin air. Instead, the council was building on a theology of lay activity that grew out of the ashes of World War 11, found strength within a renewed understanding of the nature-grace relationship, and took concrete shape in a host of initiatives launched by lay Catholics in the years leading up to the council. The following history is adapted from the author's forthcoming book, Awakening Vocation: A Theology of Christian Call. The 20th century saw the greatest resurgence of lay activity in the history of the Catholic Church. It was a movement long in the making. In fact, to really appreciate the significance of the rise of the laity, we have to see it in the context of the Church's centurieslong attempt to come to terms with the modern world. Vatican ll's theology of the laity was not created whole cloth at the council. ...

What Vocation Shortage? [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
What Vocation Shortage? BY RUSSELL SHAW Russell Shaw challenges our Catholic tendency to limit the idea of "vocation" to priesthood and religious life. God's call reaches out to all of us and touches each of us. Despite all the talk about a vocation shortage, there is in fact no such thing in the Catholic Church. The real shortage is that of vocational discernment, and that is a very different problem. The shortfall in the number of candidates for the priesthood, the consecrated life, and other forms of Christian witness and service would quickly disappear if many more Catholics, and ideally all, made it a practice to discern, accept, and live out their unique, irreplaceable callings from God—their personal vocations. The idea of personal vocation and the practice of discernment are also the key to removing clericalism from Catholic life once and for all and replacing it with a healthy understanding of clergylay relationships. Personal vocation and vocational discernment also are cr...

Doubting Thomas, the Crisis, and the Laity [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
Doubting Thomas, the Crisis, and the Laity BY ROBERT L. BELOIN The ongoing sexual abuse crisis demands more accountability for the hierarchy and less passivity for the laity. Preaching on the gospel story of doubting Thomas, Fr. Robert Beloin calls the laity to be skeptical, without becoming cynical —but above all to be courageous in helping the Church to change. I. Thomas is often described as "doubting Thomas" and so first a word about doubt. On one level, Thomas represents the reality of doubt in the life of a believer. Doubt has gotten a bad rap in religious discourse. Faith is good; doubt is often seen as the enemy of faith. We live in a university environment where we are taught to question everything. We live in a context that teaches us to be skeptical. But being skeptical, in an exaggerated sense turned in on itself and devoid of hope, can lead one to become cynical. We can inadvertently move from a healthy, skeptical questioning to a cynical, dismissive attitude that manif...
The Public Vocation of Christian Parents [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
The Public Vocation of Christian Parents BY JULIE HANLON RUBIO For most lay people, marriage and family life profoundly shape the way they respond to Christ's call. Julie Hanlon Rubio reminds us that Christian families do not only look inward, caring for their own; they also look outward, seeking ways to serve others and transform the world in the light of Christ. Amidst contemporary debates over society's responsibility for the family, Rubio challenges us to consider the family's responsibility for society. Four Tasks of Family It is important to think of family not simply as a private haven, but as a community with a mission that goes beyond itself. In On the Family (Familiaris consortia), John Paul II does just this. He defines the family as "a community of life and love" that has four major tasks. Each of these tasks has public dimensions. The first is the most obvious: The family must "guard, reveal and communicate love!" The pope distinguishes himself from earlier popes by the...
BEYOND THE DISTINCTION OF CLERGY AND LAITY [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
BEYOND THE DISTINCTION OF CLERGY AND LAITY For a long time, the terms clergy and laity, based on the presence or absence of the rites of ordination (or tonsure), have divided the Church in two. The origin of the distinction in the second or third century had as its intention to enhance the ministry, to give church service to people who would work with dedication, basic commitment. The setting forth of the clergy was not first aimed at a caste nor at producing a passive people watching a priesthood, but at giving reverence to the sacramental presence of the Spirit and at taking seriously the forms of liturgy and church life. But if the clergy meant those chosen for God's service, the corresponding laity were handed a religious existence that was secular, passive, removed. Yves Congar has written: "To look for a 'spirituality of lay people' in the Scriptures makes no sense. There is no mention of laity. Certainly the word exists, but it exists outside the Christian vocabulary." In Ame...
The Community of Sant'Egidio [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2010
The Community of Sant'Egidio BY MARIO MARAZZITI AND AUSTEN IVEREIGH One phenomenon of lay activity that is not often noticed in the United States is the growth of new "lay movements" around the world. These are associations of lay Catholics, usually existing outside of the parish structure, dedicated to prayer, ongoing formation, and various works of service. Introduced below is the Community of Sant'Egidio, a particularly prophetic movement that began in Rome and has become known worldwide for its presence to the poor and its commitment to peace, work that earned the group a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. "A Church that Is and Works to be a Church for Everyone, but Particularly the Poor" (Pope John XXIII). Like many of the remarks of Pope John XXIII, the vision of the Church he set out on the eve of the Second Vatican Council was not entirely grammatical, but it was profound. The early Christian community would have recognized that vision: a Church where everyone is welcome,...
